PYW Modena



Welcome to Modena! After three gruelsome qualifying rounds, we have reached the first round.

In the final qualifying round Eva Birnerova, winner of the ITF event of Cuneo last week, where she beat Jelena Dokic, surprisingly lost to Yulia Beygelzimer. She is, however, through to the main draw as a lucky loser.


Can Flavia serve her way to a third title?

Let's have a look at this week's main draw contestants and their PYW ranking:


PYW Ranking of the Modena contestants:

24. Flavia Pennetta ITA
27. Marta Domachowska POL
51. Maria Sanchez Lorenzo ESP
52. Marta Marrero ESP
56. Jelena Kostanic CRO
62. Maria Elena Camerin ITA
67. Arantxa Parra Santonja ESP
74. Virginia Ruano Pascual ESP
75. Francesca Schiavone ITA
76. Marlene Weingärtner GER
78. Anna Smashnova ISR
81. Martina Sucha SVK
84. Emilie Loit FRA
88. Alyona Bondarenko UKR
93. Ludmila Cervanova SVK
93. Mariana Diaz-Oliva ARG
97. Melinda Czink HUN
113. Michaela Pastikova CZE
116. Tathiana Garbin ITA
119. Emmanuelle Gagliardi SUI
122. Antonella Serra Zanetti ITA
129. Sanda Mamic CRO
132. Julia Schruff GER
134. Stéphanie Cohen-Aloro FRA
134. Maja Matevzic SLO
138. Eva Birnerova CZE
145. Zuzana Ondraskova CZE
154. Anastasiya Yakimova BLR
178. Adriana Serra Zanetti ITA
191. Zi Yan CHN
200. Yulia Beygelzimer UKR
257. Lina Stanciute LTU


As you can tell, with just two Top 20 players, this is a rather weak event. Pennetta and Domachowska are the two big favourites - anyone else winning would be a shock. Flavia Pennetta will be looking for her third title after Bogóta and Acapulco, whereas Marta Domachowska wants to take her second title in Seoul.

Outsiders are Marta Marrero and Maria Sanchez Lorenzo. But top seed Francesca Schiavone is a dangerous floater. Schiavone performed rubbish at the start of the PYW Tour, but has been improving after. Also dangerous are Alyona Bondarenko and Maja Matevzic. Bondarenko's results have been somewhat disappointing so far, but she has great potential and could go far. Matevzic has little experience due to injuries, but she reached a semi final in one of the two events she played so far.

Just go ahead and vote for who you want to win these first round matches. The first round of Modena gets underway now!
